Daryl Murphy is promoted from the bench and replaces the ineligible David McGoldrick, while Andy Drury comes in for the injured Carlos Edwards (groin).

There is no place on the bench for Jay Emmanuel-Thomas (illness), but Tyrone Mings and recent loan signing from Manchester United, Reece Brown, are among the substitutes.

Forest are unchanged from Saturday’s 1-0 win at Sheffield Wednesday, meaning Danny Collins, who scored twice for Town in their 3-2 defeat against Forest last season, skippers the Reds.

Forest: Darlow, Jara, Collins, Ward, Cohen, Lansbury, Guedioura, Majewski, Reid, Cox, Blackstock. Subs: Hutchinson, Moussi, McGugan, Greening, Lascelles, McLaughlin, Evtimov

Blues: Henderson, Stearman, Chambers, Smith, Cresswell, Drury, Hyam, N’Daw, Martin, Murphy, Chopra. Subs: Loach, Hewitt, Kisnorbo, Mings, Nouble, Brown, Mclean.

Referee: David Webb
